Hey everybody!! I'm having an issue with a RAT 2 I bought a few days ago, and maybe some of you could help. So I bought this RAT 2 distortion pedal knowing it will give me the distorted sound I want, and when I used it for the first time, I noticed its volume is quite low. Even turned to its maximum, I'm still not happy with the volume. My set up is a G&L bass, with two 1 x 12 Ampeg cabinets and the SVT VR Ampeg amp. With the RAT 2, I also use the Boss Tuner pedal. Before buying the RAT 2, I was using the Blues Driver pedal from Boss, and I was pretty happy with it, but I wanted something new, and I always heard very good things about the RAT 2. I play in a loud/noisy rock band, and my sound is sort of like David Wm. Sims' sound, quite nasty with a lot of attack. So as I said, I was very disappointed with the RAT 2 and its level. With the RAT, I also bought the power supply. Maybe it's totally stupid, but do you think that putting a 9V battery inside would make any difference???? I play very loud, but c'mon!!!!....it's the first time I've ever had an issue like this with a distortion pedal. Thanks a lot for the feedbacks!!!
